Bike starts but stalls when the choke is shut off

First clean carbs, slow and main Jet also, if 1 (or 2nd) cylinder is not getting enough fuel, it will back fire. 2nd, if you change pipes to a custom opened ones, you have to sync the carbs, if that is not possible (to sync carbs), you have to change slow and main jet 1up.

Test cdi box

2 things are important - petrol (carburetors, pump), is fr. spark wet?
electric - (spark, batery, timing).take out the spark and crank.
If you have custom pipes, you have to sync carburetors, and maby change 2 jets in carburetors.

Backfiring and trouble starting

If you change the exhaust pipes, you have to sync the carbs (if you cant sync them, you have to change the carb jets), usually it is backfiring because the carbs are not in balance.

Hi i have purchased a yamaha xvs 650 vstar classic 2003 model fitted with BUB exhaust pipes and i am getting poping and back fireing when decellarating and have been told the carby may need rejetting,could...

If the mechanic did not replace the exhaust pipe gaskets in the head or on any connections between the head pipes and the mufflers , the air leaks could be igniting unburned fuel in the exhaust , causing the popping and back firing. Try replacing any gaskets in the exhaust system.
If you have a flat spot or hesitation when accelerating than you probably also need to rejet the carburetors. Bigger main jets should fix that condition. A jet kit may also contain differently tapered needles for the slides to help compensate for the change in the acceleration curve.

I have a 2005 GSXR-600 that starts up and idles perfectly. While it's sitting there you can rev it over 7000 rpm just fine. Once you start riding it tho it will bog down around 7000 rpm thru the gears. The...

when i had a similar problem i couldnt go fast than 100 and that seemed to be the top speed.. and i could never get it close to redline only about 8500rpm max... so i had taken the carb bowls off to have a look at the jets and sure enough #1 jet had vibrated and fallen off into the bowl, it was just pouring out raw fuel and bogging it down, other than that, everything else worked great. but if you dont think its the jets and think that something else is wrong with your carbs in general, then purchase some Sea Foam and pour in 1/3 can to 2 gallons fuel and ride around for 10-15 miles and see if this wont restore all your power. it worked for me once! if none of this info works then it may just be the exhaust pipe. i have a old Hardine race pipe on mine and the baffles are old and wornout, i swear its straight pipe now.. but man it breathes really nice, and my old 87 cbr kicks everyones **** off the line at the track, even liter bikes,(except for R-1's). I myself cant believe it.. but i atribute it to my exhaust system and the performance spark advance gear that replaces the stock one in my pulse generator system.
